Star Wars #6
Prelude to Rebellion Part 6 (of 6) / Vow of Justice Part 3 (of 3)

Writing: Jan Strnad
Pencilling: Anthony Winn (Prelude), John Nadeau (Vow)
Inking: Robert Jones (Prelude), Jordi Ensign (Vow)
Coloring: Dave Nestelle
Lettering:
Cover: Ken Kelly
Released: 05/26/1999

Reviewed by: JF Boivin (10/28/1999)

SUMMARY:

Prelude: Ki rescues his daughter, and manages to steal some data from one of Jabba's cargo shuttles.

Vow: Young Ki frees himself, and serves justice to the band of raiders without shedding blood.


THE STORY

Prelude: The last part in the series, this story is very fast-paced and action-packed as Ki performs a last-minute rescue. There are more ship-to-ship battles in this one than any other issues in the series. And it is also a nice finnish as Ki learns to forgive his daughter out of guilt. There are also some clues to Episode I concerning the Trade Federation's activities, and the Jedi Council is considering adding Ki to their ranks.

I wonder who is behind the mysterious voice who speaks with Yoda at the end?

Vow: Very clever ending. Ki defeats the chieftain in combat, then tells her to disband the camp and stop harassing the farmers. The former chieftain tries to kill Ki but he is now only empty shell of a Cerean. "For the former chief, there is no greater punishment than which he's brought upon himself..."


THE ART

Another great cover by Ken Kelly. The colors are a little depressing to me. Add to that the black logo.

Prelude: Same comments as previous issues, except that Winn definitely has a talent for drawing starships. Jabba looks like he's suffocating, his head wrapped in Saran WrapTM.

Vow: Nadeau is remarkable in the way he portrays the big-headed Cereans without them looking silly.


CONCLUSIONS

Great conclusions to both stories. Eagerly anticipate the next story arc, which will be post-Episode I.

Rating: 8.5 / 10 Highly Recommended
